We visited the park during our visit to Columbus for the holidays to stretch our legs and get away from family for a bit. There are both paved and "off-road" trails which are clearly marked and have several benches along them to allow you to stop and watch nature, breathe and relax. It was great being able to "get away"... More

This wonderful Metro Park is an excellent location for a great family day out. Take a picnic with you and enjoy this jewel in the Westerville crown. There are lots of trails to explore with plenty of wild life, bubbling brooks, and spectacular tree canopies. Occasionally an officious metro park ranger would come by in the old days but refreshingly... More

There was a paved trail that ran along the outside of the park and then some inner trails that were gravel or grass. My only complaint would be that the grass trails were very muddy and difficult to... More

We were visiting from out of state and I read about this park which was around the corner from our hotel. My sister and I walked the 3.8 mile paved path each morning. There were a good bit of people out walking or riding bikes and everyone seemed friendly. We also saw a variety of birds, including a blue bird,... More

We went to the Park for Prom Pictures since the prom was just down the road at Villa Milano. Got some great shots with all the flowering trees, green trees and the lake behind them.

It would be nice to have at least one dog trail available. I typically don't go for walks through the park unless I can bring the dogs so I don't have any reason to visit Sharon Woods. Also, the two times I was there the trails were really crowded. I'm a fast walker and I found myself in quite a... More

Very nice park. Seems safe, and pleasant to walk the trails. I liked the easy trail which was maintained and kept nice. Convenient to I270.
